EA Sports has officially announced that there will be a closed beta for Madden NFL 20. The beta will start Friday, June 14 at noon and end Sunday, June 16 at midnight. The beta will be available on both Xbox One and Playstation 4.

In order to get a code, be sure to following the right accounts. According to EA, “From June 10 to June 14, we’ll give codes to select players on our social channels. Make sure to follow @EAMaddenNFL on Twitter and EAMaddenNFL on Twitch.”

EA PLAY attendees can get a code by stopping by the Madden booth. Madden NFL 20 developers will also be individually giving out codes throughout the week. Additionally, be aware of your e-mail address associated with your EA account, as a code could be delivered to your inbox.

All game modes are accessible in the beta, except for Face of the Franchise: QB1 (the new created player mode) and Madden Ultimate Team. No progress made in the beta will carry over to the real game, which drops on July 30. The Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints are the four teams available for use in the beta.

To access the beta, enter your code in the PlayStation Store or Microsoft store for PS4 and Xbox One, respectively. Each store has an area to enter or redeem codes.

Most importantly, no one is allowed to live stream the beta or capture any footage of any kind. This is strictly prohibited, and doing so will have consequences. Per EA, “By activating your code, you’re also agreeing to refrain from capturing or streaming the game in any way. Any content that is posted will be taken down and your access to the beta will be revoked immediately.”

Lastly, it’s important to note that this is not the final build of the game, and one of the main purposes of the beta is to find bugs, flaws and general problems. To submit feedback, head to EA’s feedback forum.
